metroplex 5k.

The Metroplex 5k was held on Sunday, March 16.  To set the stage, my friend had a welcome back party on March 15, and I didn't get home until after 1 am.  I also ate sooooo much food.  So, so much food.  I pretty much felt like I was going to explode once I woke up, not to mention the fact that I was super sleepy.

This race confirmed that I am not Wonder Woman.

My last 5k was where I set my new PR, and it was on February 22nd.  I ran a 28:49, so one would think that less than a month later I'd be able to run at least around a 29 or 30.

Nope!

I ran a 31:08 this race.

Yikes!

No sleep and terrible-for-you food will do that to you, I suppose.  The awful wind didn't help, but the real culprit was my own bad choices.  Oh well.  I'm not going to stress over one bad race.  I had a great time with friends, and sometimes that's worth a not-so-good race time.  

Mega points to the boyfriend for getting up the next morning to take these pictures, because while I didn't drink, he surely did… 

I'lll let you come to your own conclusion on how he felt that morning.  :)

Maybe it wasn't a PR but you still got in a run and had a fun time with friends so definitely a good weekend!!!

They cannot all be PRs, but great job for getting it done.

You might also still be recovering a bit from the half marathon. I wouldn't try to establish a new standard based on this performance. You're still fast.
